I confirm this issue is still present is current Debian Stable/Stretch and
renders CUPS unusable in network printing environments.
I could backport the packages from testing or experimental, but then I would
miss the updates from the Debian Security team (and looking at the updates
history of CUPS filters/browsed in Debian OldStable/Jessie, it is not something
I'm looking forwards to)
Can we hope in seeing this issue also fixed in Debian Stable/Stretch ?
Thanks for your efforts,
